Tom Cochrane with Red Rider

Tom Cochrane was born in Lynn Lake Manitoba Canada to his parents Violet and Tuck Cochrane. His father was a bush pilot. In the 1980's Tom became a part of a popular Toronto rock band by the name of "Red Rider. He soon became lead singer of the group and together, they released a total of five albums and one collection album.

Eventually Red Rider became known as "Tom Cochrane & Red Rider" as they released one of their hit albums, "Victory Day" in 1988. The following year they played various songs with the Edmonton Symphony and recorded their last album "Tom Cochrane & Red Rider The Symphony Sessions". Tom then decided to go single and he released his own album, which contained his hit single "Life Is A Highway", from the Cd "Mad Mad World" in 1991. He has released six other albums since then which are Ragged Ass Road (1995), Songs Of A Circling Spirit (1997), Xray Sierra (1999), Tom Cochrane & Red Rider Anthology (2002), Trapeze (2002) and No Stranger (2006).

It goes like this: millions of records, a couple dozen hits, a Juno Award (Canada's Grammy) for Band of the Year and ongoing sold-out shows across Canada. Universal Music acknowledges them as "one of Canada's top five selling bands of all time" and the Vancouver Sun has called them "Canadian rock heroes of the first order ... the best performing band in Canada".

Trooper's ten studio albums have earned multiple gold and platinum awards and their 6 X Platinum greatest hits, Hot Shots, continues to be one of Universal Music Canada's best selling catalog CDs and one of the country's most enduring party soundtracks. In 2012 Trooper songwriters Ra McGuire and Brian Smith were awarded SOCAN's prestigious 'National Achievement Award' to acknowledge their significant and lasting contribution to Canada's songwriting legacy. "We're Here for a Good Time (Not a Long Time)", "Raise a Little Hell", "The Boys in the Bright White Sportscar", "Two For the Show", "Pretty Lady" "Good Ol' General Hand Grenade", "Round, Round We Go", "Santa Maria", "Janine" - just a few of the Trooper hits that, according to writer Ryan Sparks, "have woven their way into the fabric of this country like no other bands have been able to do. It's no exaggeration to say that Trooper has become a Canadian legend. They continue to perform their huge collection of hits with the vitality and sense of humor that has served them well on their steady march through the hills and valleys of Canadian Rock and Roll.

Steven Page

“I’ve always had a sense of wonder about that era of Sixties and Seventies music, and probably always will,” he says. “I remember getting Paul McCartney’s second solo album for my 11th birthday, and there’s a picture in it of him standing in front of his 16-track machine in his home studio, with his kid tugging at him. I think from the moment I saw that photo, while listening to this strange album he’d made at his house, I decided I wanted to do the same thing.”

Page soon followed through on that promise to himself, making 4-track tapes with friends on weekends. This eventually led to the formation of Barenaked Ladies in 1988, one of the seminal bands of Canadian indie rock’s first golden period. By the time of Page’s official departure in 2009, the group had earned six North American Gold and Platinum-certified albums. These included their early cassette “The Yellow Tape,” which became the first Canadian independent release to sell 100,000 copies, their major label debut album, Gordon, which achieved Diamond status in Canada for domestic sales in excess of 1 million copies, and 1998’s Stunt, which sold over 5 million copies worldwide.

Along with embarking on a solo career, Page has enjoyed the freedom to collaborate with his close friend, British singer/songwriter Stephen Duffy, and participate in many projects with Toronto’s acclaimed Art Of Time Ensemble. On top of that, he scored the music for five Stratford (Ontario) Shakespeare Festival productions, and hosted his own globetrotting food program, The Illegal Eater, which airs in Canada on AUX-TV and globally on the Discovery Network.
